The Coming of Teddy Bears

The air is quiet

Round my bed.

The dark is drowsy

In my head.

The sky's forgetting

To be red,

And soon I'll be asleep.

A half a million

Miles away

The silver stars

Come out to play,

And comb their hair

And that's OK

And soon I'll be asleep.

And teams of fuzzy

Teddy bears

Are stumping slowly

Up the stairs

To rock me in

Their rocking chairs

And soon I'll be asleep.

The night is shining

Round my head.

The room is snuggled

In my bed.

Tomorrow I'll be

Big they said

And soon I'll be asleep.
